King CuttingColors® is a solid color-coded high-density polyethylene sheet for food applications. It is the product of a proprietary process called K-Stran™, the most advanced manufacturing process for superior flatness and consistency. King CuttingColors® has a matte finish. It is available in five colors to help prevent cross-contamination among different food types and allergies – raw meat, fish, produce, poultry, and cooked meat. The color-coded polymer sheets also help prevent cross contamination of food borne pathogens such as salmonella and E-coli. The non-porous surface does not absorb food odors and is easy to clean and sanitize.

King CuttingColors® polymer sheet is NSF listed to meet requirements of commercial food processing operations for direct and indirect food contact.

King CuttingColors® can be upgraded with an advanced antimicrobial technology for protecting the cutting board against stain and odor-causing microorganisms.*
